on america's highways in general. the question that i have is what reason can you give us this -- that we should not think that the recent recent toyota recall that would not replay itself was any other automobile dealer that puts -- manufactures automobile for america's highways. can you -- what reason can assure us that this toyota recall is really just something that is aberration as it relates to automobile safety? >> i would say this, mr. chairman, that the toyota recall while wide ranging is indicative of how n.h.t.s.a.'s uses its authority in a way to get to the bottom of something. when the secretary of transportation took office and at the time it was acting administration tour, they were observing certain issues with toyota and they felt so strongly about it that mr. metford went to japan to inform toyota that they did not feel that toyota was holding up its obligations to inform and interact with n.h.t.s.a. in a way to address safety concerns and recall concerns. that was a beginning, that effort began, actually on december 15th. it was the day of my confirmation hearing which
disciplines. and each operates uniquely with basically only two other institutions in america. and almost none around the world. the two in america being the national institutes of health, and national science foundation. where we allocate federal funds based on peer review. and so we bring the best and the brightest in america in various fields to assess projects or grants or scholarship. of one kind or another. and so when you ask about goals, one is to preserve the institution as it's come in to being. and has developed a rather wonderful track record. but beyond that, they are challenges of the time. and so i've laid forth two that i consider to be initiatives that aren't exactly goals but there's a hard, kind of thin line between a goal and an initiative. one i called bridging cultures where we're looking at putting a greater emphasis on what it is that makes a people a people. and then what it is that makes people differentiated. and we're a society that has a wondrous national culture. but we are also a mosaic of subcultures. so understanding ourselves is very important. and then we're

[ applause ] >> glenn: hello, america. it's friday. we're going to try something for about a month. and see if anybody is still watching at the end of the month. we wanted to do something on fridays called founding fathers fridays. our founding fathers, boy, they have -- most people don't even know who they are anymore. they were once revered in this country as divinely inspired, courageous visionaries. over the past 100 years we have come to realize they were nothing but old, white heathens. the christian founding has been eliminate and now maybe they were dieiests at best. it started with woodrow wilson. he wanted to transform america with roosevelt and progressive movement started. 1915-1920. the whole thing was falling apart and they couldn't get america to go for it. they couldn't get, they couldn't control americans. they couldn't do it. they wanted to transform america and they wanted three things. one, undermine faith and religion. this is the point when social justice comes in. it's no longer about equal justice or about redemption. it's social justice. they got in our fai
states. she didn't have to face the consequences of her reckless conduct while living in america. in 1996, evelyn was driving drunk in texas and fell asleep at the wheel and had a head-on collision. she had minor injuries, but in the collision, she killed her 18-year-old roommate and permanently paralyzed a third passenger. evelyn was indicted for intoxication manslaughter in texas and she was charged with a felony of drinking, driving and killing somebody. after posting bail, she and her parents snuck out of town and they headed backs to their home country of peru. mezick continues to live a lifestyle in peru without remorse or without reform. a few years ago, she put up a myspace page on the internet and posted pictures of herself drinking and partying with friends. she had a wild party, also drinking and partying with her girlfriends, complete with a male stripper and listed her favorite song. here is a photograph that she placed on the internet with some of her friends and she is the one with the drink, partying, having a good time, all the while escaping justice in texas for the crim

that any america first. to my independent brother from florida, right on, man. we need to get rid of these two parties. they need to be put out of office. we need to bring into a third party, and not fall for this tea party garbage, either. these two big parties do it every time they are not in office. we tried to be the independent, liberals, conservatives buddies. they're not our friends. they are our enemies that keep oppressing us. host: that will be the last voice this morning. in the stern, who for many years has been the president of the -- he has announced he will leave that position. on a personal side, he is turning 60. the personal aspect is much involved in his decision to leave. that is it for our thursday morning. we go to the house of representatives for today's live coverage. gues. the speaker pro tempore: the prayer will be offered by the guest chaplain, reverend clyde miles, lighthouse reform church, howard, pennsylvania. the chaplain: o lord, who call this nation into being, to the lives and sacrifice of those whose hearts are state upon you. they conduct the wo

. >> in this kind of economy, competing with that and india, raising taxes is suicidal. it makes america less competitive, less productive, less capable of building new factories. it is suicidal. i would start from the opposite end. i would say that the -- first of all it is very clear that the president made a decision part of why i moved to a much more decisive critique in describing a secular socialist machine and the most radical administration in history. they a chance after scott brown won in massachusetts to back up and say, you know the polls are against the health bill, the town hall meetings are against the health bill, the tea parties are against the health bill now we've lost kennedy's seat over the health bill, maybe we ought to go slower. instead they did the opposite. took them about a week they said we are going to ram this through no hart what the american people think. no question from every source i know of from gallup, rasmussen, dozen others that the health bill is unpopular by 20, 25 point margin. they just don't care. next they are going to come back and try to pass cap
weapons gunman -- nuclear weapons? what will happen to the status of america in the middle east if they have repeatedly said they will not allow iran to get nuclear weapons capability if they actually do get it? what happens then? >> i personally do not think economic and financial sanctions are going to be effective in deterring iran from pursuing a nuclear weapon route, and i also do not think diplomatic pressure will succeed. these measures might feel a thing is, but they will not necessarily change the -- might delay things, but they will not necessarily change things. my assessment is that iran wants a nuclear weapon for this regime wants a nuclear weapon, because they see it will guarantee the islamic republic and the kudos of having provided iran with the nuclear weapon. i also think iran sees a nuclear weapons in the way north korea sees it, which is a way of deterring the bullying of the world community and in particular the united states, so the more pressure iran finds itself under from the united states there is a grave danger it will only reinforce its determination

's not an after thought in america's quest for a brighter future. it is an essential part of that quest. so today i'd like to talk about the next chapter in this story. the challenges facing our space program are different and our imper tifs for this program are different than in decades past. we're no longer racing against an adversary. we're no longer competing to achieve a singular goal like reaching the moon. in fact, what was once a global competition has long since become a global collaboration. while the measure of our achievements has changed a great deal over the past 50 years, what we do or fail to do in seeking new frontiers is no less consequential for our future in space and here on earth. so let me start by being extremely clear. i am 100% committed to the mission of nasa and its future. [ applause ] because broadening our capabilities in space will continue to serve our society in ways we can scarcely imagine. because exploration will once more inspire wonder in a new generation, sparking passions and launching careers, and because ultimately if we fail to press forward in the purs
